The final saw the team from Kotagiri race away to an early lead with very strong hits on the buzzer. They are a school that has consistently done well at this quiz over the years and were the national runner up team in 2018. The other schools did their best to catch up but the boys from St. Jude’s seemed way too prepared for the others, as they won the quiz by a huge margin.

The battle for the second place was tight and close as the boys from PSBB, who were incidentally the youngest on stage, did well but in the final moments of the quiz it was the duo from SRDFVV Chennai that went for the buzzer and went ahead of the rest. A last question come back by PSBB was not enough to get past SRDFVV who emerged runner up.

The chief guest Australian Consul-General in Chennai, Ms. Susan Grace, while appreciating the talent of students and the high eagerness to learn across schools in India, also said her favourite location in Tamil Nadu was Nilgiris and wished the team to win the national title. Mr. Suresh Raman Vice President and Head of TCS Chennai said he was amazed with the level of answers and underlined the importance of Limitless Learning in the modern age.
